flood tides are coming
 
I have read some threads of you guys wanting to do some flood tide fishing, well this month starting on the 15th till the end of the month we will have a flood tide every day in St. Augustine. Just giving you a heads up. Small crab flies with rattles work good.

See ya out there.

Chris,

Are the flats adjacent to the airport good for this type of fishing?

Exactly what I was thinking of doing. That being said I dont know if it's mud there or firm enough to traverse on foot...

Yeah, all you have to do is follow the creeks till you find a large spartina grass flat, once you locate such a place pole the skiff over the long spartina to the smaller spartina grass and your ready to wade. The dangerous muddy areas are where the creek buts up against the long spartina, which the long spartina is your warning. Once on the small grass its pretty hard bottom.

Larry I would tie some mf2 type of fly on a #2 hook. make the fly a little more compact to mimic a fiddler crab. The rattle is the key!

Thanks for the info. I googled "mf2 fly" and couldn't come up with anything. Do you have any pics or maybe a description? Thanks.
